Your Body In Balance

Science based health solutions

Your Body Already Knows What it Needs to Thrive

The human body is designed to live and thrive on whole food and  fresh water, so it makes sense that it can also be healed with the same things.

Nature provides us with everything we need to not only improve, but maintain our health.

Even if you have been told, ”That there is nothing more that can be offered”. The Functional Medicine (healthcare) model will evaluate, prioritize and focus on any modifiable clinical imbalances in the body’s systems. You have additional options for health.

Let's Get Started

We begin with a detailed personal  consultation, physical examination, and comprehensive blood chemistry panel, as well as other objective diagnostic tools.

Objective Analysis & Pathway

Once a baseline of biomarkers has been established, we offer a clear pathway for determining and monitoring nutritional and health recommendations.

About Our Practice

Dr Michael P. Blackman

Dr Blackman has spent hundreds of hours learning how to use supplements, herbs and physical techniques to therapeutically support hormonal imbalances, adrenal and thyroid dysfunction, as well as many other chronic conditions.

After having a traditional Chiropractic practice, along with a part time nutrition/lifestyle practice, the past 33 years, Dr Blackman is excited to offer nutrition/wholistic treatment  practice full time. This will allow him to accommodate new patients, expand availability and offer additional healing clinical techniques.

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with Nutrition.” -Thomas Edison

My name is Janelle Lavin and I am a Nutrition Consultant working with Dr. Blackman at Applied Complementary Nutrition. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Wellness and with a minor in Kinesiology. During college I worked in a Hospital alongside a Dietician learning the system of Nutrition in an acute care facility. After college I worked with Dr. Blackman for three years in his Chiropractic and Nutrition office while also working in a local gym running Nutrition Programs and helping members achieve their Nutrition goals.

Two years ago I moved to Arizona to broaden my experience. While I was there, I worked at a rehab facility with top athletes and learned more about Nutrition and how important it is in athletic performance.

Now that I am back in New Hampshire, I can confidently say that I have a wide range of experience but I know now that my passion is in Whole Food Nutrition and I genuinely enjoy educating and helping people achieve their goals.

Applied Nutrition uses a unique approach. Not only do we use whole food nutrition with lifestyle changes but Dr. Blackman also uses techniques such as muscle testing, non-invasive lab tests, wellness assessments and more. This form of Nutrition is what I honestly believe in because we practice “Root Cause Nutrition” we find out what is causing the problem and then together we work towards the goal the client came in for.
